Redstone Heroes of the ‘Great COVID Resignation’

March 13th, 2020, the day our community went from staff to extraordinary heroes holding the pillars of Redstone up, protecting our residents against Covid-19. As we celebrate this unusual anniversary, we want to recognize the many faces of Redstone that not only pushed through the storm, but thrived through adversity. We want to say ‘Thank You’ and remind you that you are all brave & strong.

Congratulations to Karen Stock on Retirement!

It was 1979 and a new retirement community was just being built in Greensburg, Pennsylvania to be named Greensburg Home of the Redstone Presbytery. It was also the same year, in December, Karen Stock was interviewing for Activity Director of this new retirement community. Karen was eventually hired as employee #5, kicking off her 42 years with what is now Redstone Highlands. How do you even sum up 42 years in a short paragraph? Karen tells of all the smiles, the laughter, the crafts, and love shared in a truly unique community spread across the many years of being part of it. Karen was here from the very first pioneering days of “Let’s make this place special” to the now three-campus-wide motto of “Where every person matters”. As she tries to put four decades into a sentence, she says, “I am blessed with the opportunity to know, share and love so many residents. And, also, the privilege of working with so many special, caring coworkers. My heart is filled with so many memories.” These memories will always live in the halls of Redstone and the staff who had the pleasure of working with Karen during her wonderful career. Karen’s mark at Redstone will always remind us why our community is so valuable and special. “I thank all the residents, their families and staff for making my life so rich and rewarding,” she says. Karen, for your 42 years with us, we want to thank you and take a moment to recognize your place that will always be in our community. Good luck on your new adventure!

2022 Redstone Walks in Their His Her Our SHOES

We like to have fun here at Redstone. Our employees are active in our Monthly Charity of Choice (FUN)draisers! The Blackburn Center of Westmoreland County was our Charity of Choice for April. We held our Walk a Mile high heel walks on April 21st, 2022, and could not have had more fun. All proceeds benefitted the Blackburn Center, providing services to victims of domestic and sexual violence and crime in Westmoreland County. We did a lot more dancing than we did walking!
